5 actions that constitute medical neglect in a nursing home

Physical abuse is not the only thing you may have to worry about happening to your elderly parent when it comes to misconduct in Florida nursing homes. Another common cause of harm is medical neglect, which results from being indifferent toward patient care, failing to act on patients' behalf or neglecting patients. Although the harm may not be as intentional as it is with abuse, it can lead to just as severe consequences for the victims. These five actions are only some of the ways a Florida nursing home can commit medical neglect, likely giving you grounds for a lawsuit.

Watch out for nursing home arbitration clauses

Residences are often admitted into a nursing home during a very emotionally vulnerable time of their life. It is also a difficult time for their families. In some cases, residences fail to read the fine print of their contract, which results in them signing a document that can be harmful to their health and well-being.
